YMCA Kula Lalumpur located very near to KL Sentral station (Transportation Hub:- LRT, KTM Kamuter, KLIA express, Mono rail and Rapid KL bus) only 150 meters walking distance. I stayed here for a week …I really enjoyed. Rooms are not so big but very neat and clean. Complimentary breakfast available.

me and my wife visited last june. and a relative of mine is working in malaysia. she suggested to stay at KL sentral area. since, it's the best location to/from anywhere you want to go. and since, I'm a budget traveller. she suggested YMCA. so, I checked it out here at tripadvisor. YMCA charged me RM118 per night. so, that's about $38. really cheap. breakfast is also included. and great location. you can go practically anywhere from KL sentral. and KL sentral has two train lanes. one to petronas twin tower. the other goes to time square. one of the malls in malaysia. from time square. you can walk to a lot of other smaller malls.

let's talk about the room. the room is a little bit small. they have a lcd tv, T&B and split type aircon. but the aircon is a little bit noisy. no ref. almost all the tv channels are in their local dialect. no HBO etc.

they have strict rules on check-out time. it's on 12noon. you can't request for a late check-out. :(

at the back of YMCA. the whole street is full of local eatery/restaurant. mainly chinese and indian restaurant. very cheap and great food. a must try for everyone.

across the street. there is a local coffee shop. old town coffee shop. try their kaya toast.

Good location - not too far away from the tourist destinations. The rooms are not anything to rave about just sufficient - as long as the air conditioning works. The staff is not too helpful but a decent place to crash for a night and cover a bit of KL

First of all we used to stay here 2 years ago and everything was fine and this year trip we have to drop at Kl for one night before other place so we decided to book the hotel again due to good location and resonable price. We sent e-mail to the hotel and got confirmed booking for tripple room (detached bathroom ) and noted for our late arrival(at 0100 hrs) and the price that's Mr.Simon (hotel staff) confirmed is 118 Rm per night. We printed out all e-mail and confirmation booking with us and on arrival night we just walk through and hope that we could get in to the room and take a rest but the guy at reception force us to pay 138 Rm per night for our room. Actually i could just pay him but when i asked about the e-mail that Mr.Simon sent to us and i show an e-mail that i printed out to him, he not even read it carefully and when i asked him again to see the price so he said that he don't know if i want that price i have to get or ask from Mr.Simo (now 0130 hrs). If we want to stay here for tonight i have to pay other rate. As we are hotel staff and work for hotel so many years we can not accept that kind of answer so we walk out and surch for others hotel near by and finally we so happy for our decision because we got better hotel just at the back of YMCA, the room so clean, chic and modern with private bathroom (myhotel@sentral) and the room rate similar with YMCA . We have 2 rooms here and pay 90 RM per each room even we have to pay more but that's answer from hotel staff will never acceptable.
Dear manager of the hotel, as i am a manager from some hotel in Phuket too please pay more attention to night shift staff then this case may not happen.

Room Tip: Best thing for this hotel is location but around here have so many hotels too.

Good Rooms, No hot water in the sink only in the showers. There is a hot water maker but no coffee or tea.(penang ymca has all those things).

Friendly front desk staff. Right front of the Monorail. Close to the Sentral Railway Station.

Breakfast is small and can be a snack! Left Luggage small or big 2R for each! This is the only YMCA we had to pay for left luggages. I worked for the Vancouver YMCA we never charge for the left luggages and kept for even longer time-weeks-very big luggages- FREE!!
